The boys got up to find Easter baskets full of goodies. We enjoyed a wonderful church service, and then ate a delicious family dinner. After, we had another egg hunt at our house with a prize egg that had $5 in it! Hudson was so excited when he found the prize egg. Kendan really got the hang of finding eggs too. It was a wonderful Easter.
Today was a busy, but fun day. We started at Hudson's t-ball game that his 'Ma, 'Pa, Grandmama, Uncle Kobe, Uncle Jerrod, Aunt Jenna, Maddox, & Mason all got to come to. That is a lot of pressure for a little guy, but he did great! After his game, Maddox had a game down the road so we all went and cheered him on. :)
Then we had our Easterrific at Burnt Hickory Baptist Church. We love our church so much, and this outreach is unbelievable! They have egg hunts, inflatables, train rides, games, cookie decorating, hot dogs, cotton candy, popcorn, lemonade...and it is all free! There are so many people that come and bring their children. There is so much to do. We couldn't even make it to everything. The kids had a blast! It was a great day!!!
Tonight my big boy and I made resurrection cookies and put them in the oven. Each ingredient represents a part of the Easter story, and we sealed them in the oven tonight. In the morning we will eat them.
I love my family so much, and I love the two precious boys God has entrusted to me to raise and care for here on Earth. I am so humbled when I stop and think of all He has blessed me with when I deserve none of it.
So thankful for His sacrifice so that I could live. "Greater love had no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13 Thank you, Jesus!!!!
We spent today talking about Jesus. We are excited about Sunday, and because of Sunday we have hope. We place our trust in a LIVING God!
These are hard things to explain to a 4 year old that is so inquisitive. I try to tell him as much as I know, but it is hard for him to process and he has a lot of questions. I know that the day is coming when he too will place his faith and trust in Jesus Christ...OH GLORIOUS DAY! I am praying for that day.
I love Easter weekend! It is where my faith is unlike any other because my God is ALIVE!!!!
A few pictures from today. Hudson dying Easter eggs with me. Their initial eggs & the Easter wreath I made for $3.50. I love it!!!! :)
Pictures taken recently. Kendan cheesing, Hudson and Kendan waiting on Dr. Michael Vick (ENT). Hudson had his nose cauterized for the third time. :( We are hoping this fixes his frequent nose bleeds because the next step is the O.R. We celebrated Dylan's birthday (25) by taking him to lunch. My boys sure love Uncle Dylan! Then there is the picture taken in Athens of Kendan being a dare devil. He isn't scared of anything!!!! Last picture was taken tonight at our care group get together. Funny video of Kendan is posted below.
The first picture is of Hudson and his cousin, Maddox. Maddox and Mason came over to play one day last week, and Hudson and Maddox got the portable DVD player out to watch a movie. I couldn't get my camera out fast enough to catch them with their arms around each other's shoulders. Then I heard, "I love you, Buddy." "I love you too, Buddy." :) The second picture is Kendan showing me his surprised face. He has just started making that face, and it is so funny. He does it at the most random times.
Where has the time gone? This sweet boy is full of life, energy, and spunk. :) He is very funny,and although he looks just like his daddy he has a lot of my personality.
Kendan is so funny and loves to laugh. He loves singing "Itsy Bitsy Spider." He has started screeching lately out of frustration because he doesn't have the words to express himself yet. He absoulutely adores his big brother, and watches Hudson's every move usually mimicking as well. Imitation is the highest form of flattery, right? Hudson loves Kendan as well. He often asks if I can wake him from his nap so he can play with him. :) They play well together.
It is hard to believe 14 months have passed since Kendan was born. We cannot imagine our family without him. He is so precious. These are some of my favorite pictures taken at his 1 year session by my sweet friend, Missy. We love her and love supporting her growing business!
Love that kid. Tongue out and all.
My precious Kendan.
Typical of my sweet boy. :)

I am the wife to my very best friend and hero, Joshua, and mother to my precious children from God, Hudson and Kendan. My life is busy and blessed beyond measure. I love Jesus, and wish I was better at showing it. I love crocheting even though I'm not sure how to spell it. I love my family, Hawaii, jeeps, Welcome to Moe's, Destin, the Cosby Show, my church, watering my plants, the bird nest in my fern, my front porch swing, sweet tea, friends, good books, and a hard nap.
